Climbing

About

Ayo! The Climbing Frosh option is a place for beginner outdoor climbers to learn the ropes, and for advanced climbers to hangout and meet some of the Outdoor Club’s finest. We will set up home-base at the Alpine Club of Canada hut in Montagne D’Argent McGill Outdoors Club house in Prévost, and spending the days out climbing, hiking, and swimming. We aim to set-up a range of difficulties for routes, as well as various safety and rope-work clinics for those interested. Experienced climbers (from both the organizers and froshies) are welcome to share their knowledge and enthusiasm for the sport! We will also play classic MOC games–including, but not limited to–the infamous MOC body-bouldering and sock wrestling!
